Kind of curious, since they measure everyone down to 1/8" inch and weigh them accurately at the combine do College teams still embellish guy's size? Back in my day your basic player got 2" and 20 pounds+ added to him from the start of High School ball through College.

wow UNC didn't really embellish his height(6'4" listed) at all and he is 5 pounds heavier than his listed weight from them as well.
Some schools still do it by up 2 inches, like a guy measures at 6 feet 2.5 inches and the school says he's 6'4. The last 3-4 years I've seen most of the bigger schools have been fairly truthful with height, only rounding up the next inch marker.
Weight it depends on the position but I've seen skill position players have 3-7 pounds of weight difference at weigh-ins. OL/DL has usually been about the same or the player comes in heavier than the listed weight.
